In this project we learn how to build a WordPress plugin. We will start with an overview of what plugins are and how they work. We will then move into best practices for coding in the WordPress environment and some basic functions and reference material you need to know. In the process you'll learn actions, filters and how to create widgets and shortcodes. You'll even learn how to integrate with 3rd party APIs and create your own WordPress plugins from scratch.
What you'll learn
